Prepare to help, heal through the UW-Stevens Point School of Health Care Professions

The School of Health Care Professions at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point strives to give students interested in health-related careers hands-on training to nurture workplace success. We challenge students through majors such as clinical laboratory science, health science and pre-nursing. Join us to build in-demand skills for a rewarding industry dedicated to helping and healing.

Preparing medical professionals in athletic training

A degree in athletic training prepares you to prevent, evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate injuries and illnesses related to physical activity. At UW-Stevens Point, you'll be part of the first comprehensive athletic training major in the state and benefit from a cutting-edge learning environment in our Sports Medicine Center. You'll benefit from small class sizes, active academic advising, engaged faculty, superb laboratory facilities and top-notch practicum experiences.

Clinical laboratory science degree provides versatility

The clinical laboratory science (CLS) program is among the largest in the state and one of the few with national accreditation. Clinical laboratory science professionals integrate biology, chemistry and medicine to help maintain public health, and diagnose, monitor and treat diseases. Our options within the major include:
  • medical technology, which studies blood, body fluids and tissues using sophisticated techniques and biomedical instrumentation through laboratory analyses;
  • cytotechnology, which studies cells and cell abnormalities; and
  • histotechnology, which studies bodily organs and tissues.

Help others through health science

Health science at UW-Stevens Point connects human elements with scientific processes. Our program gives you the skills to work in a rapidly evolving field, incorporating new technologies with innovative problem-solving techniques to help people get healthy.

The health science major is designed to help you learn more about the many options available within the field of health care as well as prepare some students for graduate-level specialties with options including:

Nursing: changing lives

The pre-nursing program provides prerequisite courses for admission to schools of nursing, including those at other University of Wisconsin System schools, private universities and technical colleges.
